Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and 7 600 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

MAX IV is a Swedish national large-scale research laboratory hosted by Lund University. It provides scientists from Sweden as well as internationally, with state-of-the-art instrumentation for research in areas such as engineering, physics, structural biology, chemistry and nanotechnology. Fully developed it will receive more than 2 000 scientists annually, conducting ground-breaking experiments in materials and life sciences using the brilliant X-ray light. As a national laboratory, MAX IV is operated in agreement with governmental regulations, and in compliance with major funders such as the Swedish Research Council (VR) and the Wallenberg Foundation. 250 people are currently employed at MAX IV Laboratory, and 16 beamlines are funded. The facility is in a ramp-up phase with 3 beamlines now receiving users and 13 more scheduled to be commissioned and built to receive users within the next few years. The facility is dimensioned for 25-28 beamlines.

MAX IV has the highest quality of X-rays available in the whole world, being part of this facility will open the opportunity for you to solve challenges faced which could affect the machine and beamline performance.

MAX IV offers a unique opportunity for development. The requirement in terms or alignment and stability tends to be high, and provide a challenge to achieve, allowing the SAM engineer to investigate of possible methods and techniques to achieve the requirements.

This position is within the Engineering I group that consists of four teams: SAM, Vacuum, Mechanical workshop and Mechanical design team. The teams operate as partners working with the machine and the beamline in providing the needed support for optimal results.


As SAM (survey, alignment and mechanical stability) team member, you shall apply technical, mathematical and computer related knowledge and skills to complete survey, alignment and mechanical stability tasks and to analyse and solve technical problems.

- MSc degree in engineering
- One-year experience with survey and alignment engineering principles and practices
- Hands-on (practical) experience in Survey, Alignment and Mechanical stability
- Experience in survey, alignment and metrology related to particle accelerators
- Experience is using laser trackers, 3D measuring arm, fiducialization, theodolites, vibrometers, seismometer and accelerometers
- Demonstrated computer skills (Solidworks, Matlab, COMSOL, Spatial Analyzer, Scream…)
- Good command in spoken and written English

Additional requirements

- Experience in metrology

It is important for this position to be structured and quality conscious as well as service minded, flexible and performance oriented. As most work is organized as teamwork, it is also essential to have an excellent ability to cooperate.
